Preparing pumpkin seeds
As Autumn is nearly here, I thought it might be useful to know how to prepare and dry pumpkin seeds as some of mine look as though they are ready. The leaves have all died off, I've picked them and they are just providing colour around the garden now.
Cut the pumpkin open and remove the seeds.
Wash them really well under running water in a colander to remove the slightly sticky surrounding tissue.
Pat dry on a tea-towel or two.
Try making pepitas with them!
